May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2017/18) there are twenty five children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Lynne Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development



-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

It's playtime all the time during Terms 3 and 4 in May Hill class as we investigate Toys and Games. We take a step back into the past to find out about Victorian toys. We will learn playground games from the past and visit a museum. We will interview our parents and grandparents to find out about their childhood toys.There will be a toyshop in the classroom and we will develop our knowledge of money and time. In d.t. we will be making models, spinners and puppets and developing our skills by drawing, painting and printing. In science we will discover how toys move and investigate different materials. There will be new songs and poems to learn in preparation for our Easter Assembly.

Don't forget to look at the photos on the topic board in the corridor to see how busy we've been.
